Natural Wine Stain Tutorial

Don't forget to stop by and Like my Facebook Page! DIY Vintage Chic.
Carrying on from my Natural Stain Tutorials {find Vinegar Stains here and my Failed Penny Stain here} I decided to try out red wine! For all you wine lovers, no, I did not waste a lot. Actually I wasn't enjoying this bottle of Malbec so I thought this would be the perfect way to use it. Results are below!

After one coat

After two coats

I'm curious to see how Malbec might look on a different type of wood. Or how the stain would look with a different type of red wine, a Cab or Syrah. Or maybe something lighter like pinot noir? Or if you would even notice a blush or rose wine stain???

Now I'm off to rethink the penny stain. I must figure out a way!

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Very interesting! Have you tried staining with coconut oil yet? It came out pretty cool on the 2 pieces I have done it on so far.

    1. Hmmm... no I haven't tried. But I have a jar at home so it's worth a shot!

  2. It's kind of fun to stain with things that you might have around the house. It really turned out a nice color! Thanks for sharing with SYC.

  3. Love the color. I would never have thought of that. Thanks tons for linking to Inspire Me. Hug Marty

  4. Does the wine need the vinegar as a stabilizer? Do you know if using vinegar is needed at all (with any natural stain) when a preconditioner is being used? Thanks so much for your time, I tend to over think "everything", but I'm trying to take every precaution so my project turns out well, once the stain is done I'm using it as a canvas for a painting!!

    1. For the wine stain there is no vinegar added. This is just red wine. For my previous posts, using vinegar is usually what gives the stain it's color. I'm sure for the coffee and vinegar stain you could remove the vinegar but you'll have different results than mine. Good luck!

  5. Use pennies from the 60s, and add a bit of hydrogen peroxide to the vinger solution. I've read in a few places that that worked wonderfully. Hope it helps :)

  6. what would happen if you used red wine vinegar?
